Finally, one of the key implications of the paper written above is implementation of recommendations given by the World Health Organization. The report by WHO suggests a comprehensive array of changes to give Americans world class health care. These recommendations could have the widest impact on patients, families, and communities, including treatment of people with substance abuse and more aggressive management of obesity. Such recommendations were concurred by the Institute of Medicine, which advises the US Congress on medical issues. There is strong proof that shows that carrying out these proposals to the word will bring the healthcare industry’s performance on par with advances in medical technology as well as lifting the ethical standards prevailing in the health system.
